The thing I like about the concession-thesis-reason topic sentence model is that it’s Writing-Lettercompact. It forces the writer to condense his counterargument, thesis, and reasons into a simple, streamlined idea that is easily grasped by the reader. Today’s lesson was focused on learning that model, but if you were unable to be here, fear not – just click on the Thesis Statements Review link to get your own copy.

Remember, you need to write a thesis sentence for every topic in the last slide of the presentation, and each sentence needs to follow the model of concessionthesisreasons.

Although surveillance cameras may be expensive, schools should install them because they increase safety, reduce vandalism, and keep both teachers and students accountable for their actions.
